Sun shines on Windsor club finals
11:01am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Penarth sport
WINDSOR bowlers made the short trip to Penarth for the final Men's Alliance match and, although there was a good win (18-9) by Alun Daniel, Tommy Owen, Tim White and Alf Holmes and a hard-earned draw (12-12) from Eddie Thorne's rink, the game was lost by eight shots.
As a warm-up for the club's finals weekend, Windsor entertained a touring side from Sidmouth, East Devon, in a nailbiting match where a single shot separated the six mixed rinks. Men’s captain Paul Gunter thanked everyone for their participation and, to ensure the visitors continued their travels in happy mode, declared the match an ‘honourable draw.'
